Runway clear for take (your clothes) off! VietJetAir Fined for In-Flight Bikini Show

VietJet Air fined for organizing bikini show on plane 

VietJet Air, a private run economy airline, was fined VND20 million (US$950) for organizing a bikini show on its Ho Chi Minh City-Nha Trang flight on August 3.

The airline also allowed passengers to use cell phones and cameras to record the show, in complete breach of aviation safety regulations, which requires that all audio, video and camera equipment should be stored and not allowed for use during flights.

The bikini show, which was called ‘Hawaiian dance performance’ had not been approved by the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, and thus breached aviation safety and security regulations.

The young girls who participated in the show are contestants for ‘Miss Ngoi Sao’, a local beauty pageant organized by Ngoi Sao online newspaper.

Photos and video clips of the ‘Hawaiian dance performance’ were posted on the Internet and stirred much controversy.
